My mate was in with his new Xcel SLX 4mm on Saturday and was complaining about water coming in around the chest zip area :? plus he said it was awkward to zip it up

I wanted a Snugg but past one was like wearing Cardboard. Had the Titan Minizip about 11 years ago. FOr the money, I'm not sure, hmmm. See how this Patagucci is. Happy with my infiniti.

Boz suits from peru are meant to be good.

I had a new patch put in for dirt cheap by bodyline newquay as water was seeping through my arse. Too much time sitting around not catching waves I guess. Or maybe just a big booty. :shock:

Halfway through the second season in the Bodyglove Vapor 5/4mm chestzip and it is still ridiculously warm and comfy.... so warm, in fact, that I actually get a sweat on and often have to shower before going into work as I smell like a camel :? :lol: A 4/3mm of the same suit would easily do most winters in the southwest I reckon. Even a hooded 3/2mm would probably let you in the sea for an hour in January before you felt chilly....

Still in one piece, slightly frayed/worn collar and cuffs, but seams are rock solid and zip fastening points are as good as new. Would buy another in a blink of an eye if they were more easily available over here....

5mm Hooded Xcel Drylock, couple of years old, picked up second hand and it'd barely been used, waaaaaayyy too warm in the SW. Hooded 4mm is plenty down here.


Not really sure what the point of posting this is, but it feels good....
